So I've been a bit slow with the posting past couple months, and I just thought I'd do a journal to let people know I wasn't carried off by a flock of rabid pigeons or whatever.
The short version is that addition to the usual holi-delays everyone seems to experience this time of year, I've been in a bit of a learning cycle (aka "okay, I think I almost know what I've been doing wrong, just need to figure out how to not do that"
), and I'm dividing myself between several major projects. This has been eating into the time I normally would devote to smaller commissions and just for fun stuff like the squirrel-elephant-toaster hybrid I owe ya'll. (its coming, I just decided I wasn't happy with the initial version and so I'm slowly working on a 2.0.
To be honest I think these past few months have been an extremely productive period for me, even if my posting hasn't reflected that, epecially since I've been picking up a bunch of new tricks and refining old ones, and one of the mysterious mystery projects has potential for major long-term payoff.
I'm just trying to stave off burnout by not letting myself overdo it, (All work and no play make scorp a dull boy and all that.
) while still getting done all the things I need to get done.
Tough balance to find, but I think I'm starting to zero in on a schedule that keeps me from both chasing too many white rabbits and from grinding myself into burnout.
